      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Heater not getting Hot

    this is a factory fitted bung that is inside the pipe.
  2. Heater not getting Hot

    i had a similar problem and the problem was the 2 small pipes going to the header tank. there is a small plasic bung inside each pipe about 2" in from header tank. these were blocked with crud and weren't letting the air escape from the engine. i had had a pipe split on me a while back and when i refilled the system the heater wouldnt blow any heat even tho i wasnt losing any water and i had filled the heater matrix separately too. removing the bungs was an instant cure. the car was also overheating too if i drove it hard but ok if i slowed down
